More Silvercorp news

I'll keep reposting links to these news stories so they can get some traction and people can start paying attention:

National Post - B.C. man wins right to sue Canadian mining company he says conspired to falsely imprison him in China. Quote:
A British Columbia man has won the right to sue a company in a Canadian court that he alleges conspired with Chinese authorities to force him to spend years behind bars in China.

The B.C. Supreme Court rejected a bid by Silvercorp Metals Inc. to have Kun Huang’s allegations of “false imprisonment” thrown out.

The Vancouver-based mining company had claimed in court that the case would be better dealt with in the Chinese justice system.


In his lawsuit, Huang alleged the mining company provided money and encouragement to local police, directing them to detain and interrogate him.

He claimed local police, at Silvercorp’s direction, demanded he turn over passwords to his computer, email and trading accounts associated with EOS.

The documents further allege that Silvercorp used that access to find documents to bolster its defamation claim against Huang.

Following a lengthy detention, Huang was reportedly convicted in September 2013 in a single-day, closed-door criminal trial.

He claims the trial was attended by two lawyers from Silvercorp who effectively acted as prosecution.
